The Lund Barnacle was highlighted in a 1994 pan-Canadian survey of "rural community innovations" ("Where the Grass Thrusts Through the Concrete" published by Voluntary Action Directorate, Canadian Heritage - Government of Canada ISBN --663-33361-2).  As one of only 6 models from BC that were selected to be highlighted in the survey, the Barnacle demonstrates the ways individuals come together as a community to explore/resolve concerns and to care for each other.  As described in the Survey, the Barnacle exemplifies a grass-roots initiative that helps keep communities vibrant and healthy even when facing difficult, changing, or challenging economies and circumstances.

2014 - 1988 Lund Barnacles

In 2014, an idea was tossed around by Teedie Kagume, of the Powell River Historical Museum, and Sandy Dunlop, current editor of the Barnacle, to have the  Museum digitize all of the back issues from the newspaper’s debut in summer 1988. This idea blossomed into approval by the Lund Community Society to apply for a matching funds grant to the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre at UBC Library. In February of 2015, we learned we had been awarded the grant.

 

Finding a copy of all of the Barnacles was challenging; finding uncrumpled copies without coffee rings, pen doodles, and half-completed crosswords was even more so. Under each volunteer editor and staff, the paper had a different publishing schedule, so we may never know if the issues we could not find were ever even printed. So Lund! What follows are the issues we did find, and being able to save them from moths and to share them online is very satisfying.

 

Many thanks to:

The Powell River Historical Museum, especially Teedie Kzume, Bert Finnamore, and Doug Mobley

The Irving K. Barber Learning Centre at UBC Library

The Lund Community Society and its volunteers, especially Sandy Dunlop for initiating the project, Margaret Leitner for writing the grant, and Wendy Drummond for managing technology.
